Anne Scarffe has worked for The Mountain-Ear newspaper as a photographer, reporter and in circulation. Starting in August 2011, she worked as circulation manager picking up, sorting and labeling the newspaper and delivering it to the Post Office for mailing and to area businesses.

She has written articles, covered Gilpin School Board meetings for about one year, and has been photographer of local events. She photographed two Fourth of July parades in 2019 for the paper.

Anne graduated from Lakewood High School in St. Petersburg, Florida, in June 1997 and from the Utah College of Massage Therapy in Salt Lake, Utah, in May 2009 and passed the Federation of State Massage Therapy Boards licensing exam in June 2009.

She has worked for Massage Envy with two locations in Centennial and Sheridan from 2010 to 2012 and at AMassage at the Denver Airport from 2013 to 2015 and 2018 to 2019. She is currently working for Hand and Stone Massage in Lakewood.

Anne has customer service experience with pizza delivery management, deli associate in Wal-Mart, Publix, Smith’s and King Soopers grocery stores, and an international technical customer service representative in an inbound call center for Directv for more than two years.

She worked in management at four pizza companies, Pizza Hut for five years, Dominos for 2.5 years, Lil Caesars for one year and Pizza Time for six months, training as a driver first and then as a manager and dispatcher of the drivers. She routed drivers for maximum efficiency with multiple deliveries.

Anne worked for Pony Express for five years from 1993 to 1998, first as a courier, then warehouse supervisor, then lead courier, then promoted to dispatcher. She routed more than 50 drivers, sometimes rerouting them, sometimes changing the routes, if needed. She was in charge and responsible for 20 weekend routes, lining up couriers, keeping apprised of their progress, and answering customer questions and concerns.
